The other day, I ran across this website with pictures that were commissioned by the North Korean government as propaganda. I thought it was
interesting, as it allows us to see how the North Koreans view Americans. I think it's safe to say that this is only the tip of the ice-berg, thus if
war ever evolved in the region, I doubt that the North Koreans would simply surrender. When you are viewing these pictures, try to put yourself in the
shoes of these people. They are raised with this very idea. In fact, I'm sure that whenever the term America is ever uttered by a North Korean, it's
images like these that are conjured up in their minds. If you were raised to believe this and to also believe that your "dear leader" is a sort of
demi-god, then I think it's safe to say that you aren't going to give up so easily. Anyway, it's interesting to get a peak into the minds of North
Koreans, when it comes to how they view America.
I have to warn everyone that these images are graphic and viewer discretion in highly advised. Now, without further adieu, I present to you
"Americans, from the eyes of North Korea".
At the end of WWII when we beat the Japanese and moved in to occupy, many civilians were killing themselves because of the propaganda they recieved
from their government, regarding "barbaric Americans". Unfortunately, the Japanese weren't brainwashed anywhere near the level of the North koreans
and the indoctrination wasn't nearly as heavy either. It's just something to think about.
Now before people try to say, "well America does torture and kill innocent civilians", the vast majority of our military would never, ever do such a
thing, nor would the majority of our civilian population. Sure, there are a few bad apples, just like with anything, though I'm willing to bet that
when compared to many other countries, our military is far more merciful. Furthermore, torture and murder aren't policies of the US military, so much
as the CIA and the influences that have taken over control. I think it's safe to say, even by the standards of "America-haters", that this
propaganda doesn't represent America.
